Dogs Can Eat Cooked Brussels Sprouts in Moderation

The saying “you can never have too much of a good thing” doesn’t apply when it comes to dog food. Yes, Brussels sprouts are great and are packed with important nutrients but you should never let your dog eat too many Brussels sprouts.

Like any other food that isn’t part of your dog’s regular diet, Brussels sprouts may cause issues like stomach upsets and diarrhea if a dog eats too many of them. One concern is the fact that your dog can become pretty gassy due to the amount of isothiocyanates the sprouts contain.

It will be fine, however, if you only feed them a small amount each time. We suggest cooking (roasting, boiling, or steaming) them first. Raw Brussels sprouts may cause even more problems for the dog’s stomach because the hard texture makes it difficult to digest.
